Geflüchtete und wir – sozialpsychologische Perspektiven

Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Die steigende Zahl an geflüchteten Menschen in Deutschland führt zu Akzeptanz und Unterstützung, aber auch zu Ablehnung. Psychologisch gehen solche Reaktionen auf Kategorisierungsprozesse und Emotionen zurück, die mit der Gruppe der Geflüchteten in Verbindung gebracht werden. Diese psychologischen Mechanismen selbst hängen ab vom politischen und medialen Umgang mit dem sogenannten Flüchtlingsproblem. Die Bestimmung der relevanten gesellschaftlichen und psychologischen Voraussetzungen für Akzeptanz und Ablehnung erlaubt Praxisempfehlungen: Wenn man gegen Vorurteile, Diskriminierung und Gewalt gegen Fremde vorgehen will, sind unnötige Kategosierungen und willkürliche Abwertungen „der Fremden“ zu vermeiden. Und, Kontakt hilft, negativer politischer Propaganda vorzubeugen.
